A new season = new trends, and that calls for a hair makeover, too. So we've teamed up with TONI&GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe to bring you autumn's hottest catwalk looks, which we've put to the test. Will they work in real life? Can they take you from day to evening? Plus we show you how to recreate the look. On trial this week: the fish-tail plait
Weekend bike ride
When you're out and about, you want to be casual yet groomed and on trend. Beat the changeable autumnal weather with layers – a tweed jacket over a pretty knit and tough denim shirt. A fish-tail plait is the easy chic way to finish this look.
HAIR MEET WARDROBE HAIR AMBASSADOR: Spray TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray from root to tip on towel-dried or dry hair to provide texture and body. Create a casual fish-tail plait to start the day.
Lunch with friends
Ditch the jacket to reveal your feminine knit and add a pendant necklace. Hair will still be neat and have a pretty edge thanks to the plait, worn over one shoulder.
HAIR MEET WARDROBE HAIR AMBASSADOR: For a casual look for lunch, gently loosen the plait and leave strands of hair loose around your face. Add a little TONI&GUY Casual Sculpting Powder to the length of the plait for extra texture.
Dinner and cocktails
This look is easy to transform from daytime practical to evening sophistication. A printed dress with standout accessories nails it. To glam–over your hair, simply bring the fish–tail plait over the top of your head and secure with pins for grown–up elegance.
HAIR MEET WARDROBE HAIR AMBASSADOR: Before securing your plait in place, add a little TONI&GUY Casual Sculpting Powder directly to the roots for a slight lift. Once the plait is pinned, fix with TONI&GUY Casual Flexible Hold Hairspray for a style that will last all evening long.
